Welcome to the new readers.

Let’s continue to read who wrote the New Testament.  What single author wrote most of the
New Testament (after Jesus birth)?

Romans was written by the Apostle Paul.  Reading Romans 15:26 it is suggested that Paul had received con-
tributions from the churches of Macedonia and Achalia, so he either was in the city of Corinth or had just been
there.

1 Corinthians was written by Paul.  1 Corinthians 16:21  I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand.

Galatians was written by Paul.

Philippians was written by Paul while he was in prison.  Philippians 1:13  As a result, it has become clear
throughout the palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.

Colossians was also written by Paul while he was in prison.  Colossians 1:1  Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by
the will of God …

1 Thessalonians was written by Paul.  1 Thessalonians 2:18  For we wanted to come to you- certainly I, Paul,
did, again and again-

1 Timothy, Titus, Phlemon 1, and Hebrews was written by Paul.  

In all, Paul wrote 14 books of the New Testament.  More than any other author.

Just a little background.  Paul, originally named Saul, was a Roman citizen.  He would imprison Christians and per-
secute them and even have them put to death.  One day, Saul was nearing Damascus to search for Christians.  He
was stopped by a bright light that surrounded him.  He fell to his knees as he heard the voice of Christ say “Saul,
Saul, why do you persecute me.”  Because of this encounter, Saul entered Damascus and tells of his conversion.
After this he traveled the northern and eastern sides of the Mediterranean Sea spreading the news about Christ.

The Old Testament was written mostly by the prophets.  Continuing, who wrote the books of the
New Testament (after the birth of Jesus).

Mathew was written by Mathew, one of the twelve apostles.  He traveled and walked with Jesus.  He was an
eyewitness to the life of Jesus.

Mark was written by Mark, also one of the twelve apostles.  He also traveled and walked with Jesus.  He also
was an eyewitness to the life of Jesus.

Luke was written by Luke.

John was written by John.  John 21:24  “This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them
down.  We know that his testimony is true.”

Luke was written by Luke.  Luke 1:3  “Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the
beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you.”

So far, it appears most of the New Testament was written by the original twelve apostles that travel-
ed and walked with Jesus.

Next, what single author wrote most of the New Testament.

Welcome.  Let’s continue to establish who wrote the books of the bible.  I know this is redundant but I think it is
important to establish bible accuracy.

According to Jewish tradition, the book of Judges was written by Samuel.  Several scriptures state “in those
days there was no king.”  This tells us Judges was written after the time of Moses and Joshua and before the first
King Saul.  In 1Samuel 16, the Prophet Samuel anoints Saul as the first King of Israel.

Although the book of Job was about Job, he was not the author.  The author of Job was probably an Israelite, 
since he frequently uses the word Yahweh for God.  We don’t know who the Israelite was, but it had to be
divinely revealed to him.  He received information only God could know.  For example, the conversation between
God and Satan concerning Job.

Proverbs was written by a group of wise men or scribes.

Several scriptures suggest that Ecclesiastes was written by King Solomon.  It was written in the first person,
using “I”.  Ecclesiastes 1:1  The words of the Teacher, son of David, King in Jerusalem.  Ecclesiastes 1:12  I, the
teacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem.

Isaiah himself was thought to have written Isaiah.  He is often thought of as the greatest of the writing
prophets.

Daniel was written by Daniel himself.

The book of Jonah (and the whale) is traditionally thought to have been written by Jonah.

Jeremiah was written by Jeremiah.  Jeremiah 36:2  “Take a scroll and write on it all the words I have spoken
to you concerning Israel, Judah and the other nations.

Most of the books of the Old Testament were written by the prophets.  Next week we will read who wrote the
New Testament.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Let’s continue to read that Moses wrote many of the first books of the bible.

Deuteronomy 31:9  Moses wrote down this law and gave it to the priests.

Deuteronomy 31:22  So Moses wrote down this song that day and taught it to the Israelites.

John 5:46  If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he (Moses) wrote about me.

Mark 12:19  “Teacher,”  they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man …

It is clear that Moses could write.  Most scholars believe that Moses wrote the first five books of the bible-
Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.  Moses wrote some of the books as he experienced
them.  Genesis was given to Moses after the events occurred.  Most likely by the Holy Spirit.

Next week we will continue to read who wrote the books of the bible.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Bible Accuracy

Have you ever heard the following question?  How can the bible be accurate when it was written years
after the events?

Let’s begin by examining the authors of the bible.

The second book of the bible is Exodus.  This book describes how Moses lead the Israelite slaves out of Egypt.  The
Egyptians were well educated.  They are also known to have the first scribes.  Although Moses was an Israelite, he
was raised by the Egyptians.  Moses was found by the Pharaoh’s daughter while he was floating in a basket
structure on the river nile.  Moses was raised by the Egyptian Pharaoh’s daughter and well educated.  He
could read and wright.

Let’s read some scriptures to confirm that Moses wrote much of the early bible.

Exodus 17:14  Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this on a scroll as something to be remembered and
make sure Joshua hears it, …

Exodus 24:4  Moses then wrote down everything the Lord had said.

Exodus 34:27  “Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I
have made a covenant with you and with Israel.

Numbers 33:2  At the Lord’s command Moses recorded the stages of their journey.

Next week, we will continue to verify that Moses wrote much of the early scriptures.  Followed by a review of who
wrote each book of the bible.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
